Durango Cowboy Gathering

October 2-6, 2024

Downtown Durango • Durango, CO

Event Description

The Durango Cowboy Gathering is a fun filled five-day event that captures the true spirit of the American cowboy through song, music and stories.

Cowboy poets and musicians from all across the country will perform in various venues throughout Durango including the Doubletree and Strater Hotels. They also will visit area schools to entertain students with stories and songs about Durango's western culture and lifestyle.

On Saturday, one of Colorado’s largest motorless parades and a chuckwagon breakfast kick off a day full of activities.

New this year, the Gathering will feature The Horseback Social before the parade. Six blocks of historic downtown historic Durango will be closed to traffic so that hundreds of cowboys, cowgirls, and other horse enthusiasts can get together with each other, along with members of the community. Multiple areas adjacent to the riding enclosure will be set aside for a variety of activities, including a petting corral and horse rides for the kids. It will be a unique and captivating experience for participants, as well as locals and visitors alike.

For 36 years, the mission of the Gathering is to remind people of Durango’s western heritage and culture. We hope you will join us as we celebrate the traditions unique to the Old West.
